By PAUL RESNICK
:Michigan State won by a technical knockout in the second
e ent of yesterday's men's gymnastics competition when
1Aichigan's Gavin Meyerowitz's knee-cap was knocked out of
paee as he fell off the pommel horse.
,.The Wolverines' only back-up all-arounder, Steve Schein-
tan, had already been called on to fill in for injured Dino
*anus (shoulder). As a result, Michigan had to compete
,4ith four men against MSU's five on the rings, parallel bar
nxphigh bar.
,.THAT WAS LIKE playing the last five innings of a nine-
inp ng baseball game without an infield. The final score was
26#.15 to 235.80 in favor of the Spartans.
Under new collegiate rules this season, five gymnasts
compete in each event and all five scores count. "The rules
are the rules," said Spartan coach George Szypula. "Even in
the/Olympic games they have that cushion (against injury)
of competing six men with five scores counting.
"Both: (Michigan coach) Loken and I fought the rules
committee," he added. "The rules are stupid, but they're
still the rules."
6ZYPULA, POINTED OUT that MSU is also hobbled and
Iuffered a fate similar to Michigan's last week as a result of

injuries. "We outlimped them," he said.
"We're a 270 team," said Spartan assistant coach John
Nelson. "We had an all right meet...but we're going to put a
270 team together by Big Ten time."
Loken, the eternal optimist, managed to see the bright side
-of the loss. "Super show by the individuals," he said. In fact,
Michigan gymnasts placed first in every individual event
save one.
Milan Stanovich and Rich Landman both received their
best all-around scores of the season, 55.8 and 53.20 respec-
tively, good for first and third in the competition. Stanovich
also took first on the-high bar with a 9.6.
Only on pommel horse did Michigan State capture the top
spot with Greg Bosscawen's 9.6. Even in that event,
Michigan fared well as Dave Miller posted his best score of
the season, 9.4.
Despite the strong individual performances, the
Wolverines' future still depends on the injury situation,
which may have taken yet another turn for the worse.
Stanovich was bothered during floor exercises by an ankle in-
jury he sustained in practice last week. He hopes that a week
of rest will allow full recovery. The rest of the team must be
hoping, too.

#This was the most disgraceful gym-

Michigan State women's gymnastics
head coach Michael Kasavana. The

'Rasavana accused Michigan coaches
of hassling judges and having an all-
around lack of respect for the Spartan's
gyninasts.
INTERESTINGLY ENOUGH,
Kasavana's hard feelings were no
reflection of his lady tumblers' perfor-
mance as they compiled a team score of
708, besting the Wolverines' 168.9.
Wichigan State didn't beat us, we
bean ourselves," commented Michigan
coach Sheri Hyatt, "We were lacking
confidence and as a result we just didn't
1 as good as we could have." -
The deciding event was the balance
bem. Michigan tumblers lost grip
consistently, leading to unusually low
scores. Senior Angela Deaver, the
Wolverines' premier performer in the
event, had one slip in her otherwise
old routine resulting in a surprisingly
No score of 8.4. Thus, the Spartans

Samuelson, in which she placed secondy
on the vault with an 8.75 and scored a,
solid 8.8 in her fourth-place floor exer-
cise routine, she sighed, "The meet
lacked momentum...or concen-
tration...I don't know, something was
off."
Other Michigan all-arounders,
Christy Schwartz and Kathy Beckwith
turned in strong efforts as well. Sch-
wartz scored a 9.0 on the bars, second
only to Spartan Frances Marino's 9.05,

while Beckwith took third with an 8.95.
Michigan State's Kir McCabe and
Marino earned:first- and second-place
all-around scores of 35.05 and 35.00,
respectively. Wolverine Beckwith
grabbed third with a 34.85. "This is the
first meet in a while that I feel I gave
100 percent," said Marino. "And I
guess my all-around score shows it."
"It's not like State is that awesome or
anything," commented Beckwith, "Ifr
we had performed up to par, we could
have easily beat them."
